Busch Claims Pocono Pole


Kyle Busch turned a lap of 179.151 mph to win the pole for Sunday's Monster Energy Race at Pocono Raceway.

Busch also won the pole for last weekend's race at Dover, but his run was derailed when a tire came off during a pit stop.

Martin Truex Jr. starts second and Matt Kenseth third for a 1-2-3 start for Toyota. Ryan Blaney was fourth, followed by fellow Ford drivers Kurt Busch and Brad Keselowski.

Darrell Wallace Jr. starts 16th in the No. 43 Ford. He's the first African-American driver in a Cup race since 2006.
